The Ship-wrecker’s Lamp: Available Now!

I did a book!

Somehow, amongst the madness of 2020, I found little slivers of time to collect and polish up another 80 of my poems. The Ship-wrecker’s Lamp contains many of my more recent poems as well a chapter dedicated entirely to poems written about 2020’s Covid lockdown.

All 80 poems were written between 2010-2020. Reflecting on romance, desire, life, lockdown, friendship and writing. The perfect stocking filler, wonky table leg leveller or double-fisting beer coaster…

Buy the paperback edition from Amazon now.

Here are a couple of poems from the book:

High Tide, Low Life

Chalk-White Moonlight

Between A Blue Night and Dawn

Thanks for reading/listening.

    1. Thanks Peter, I love that bit too. I really want to collaborate with some other poems/musicians to bring the work to life more. Will have to make that a resolution for 2021! 🙂 Thanks again for reading and listening.

    1. Cheers! When you’re not allowed to do a whole lot, what better to do than compile a book… I hope people enjoy it. I look forward to the time when I can start leaving them on hotel bookshelves around the world for people to discover (as has always been my plan).
